5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Towson makes sure that students are safe when they are on or off campus. There are campus alerts that are sent out when a call is made that there was a crime near or on campus. There are blue lights all across campus that if you press the button, a cop will be at your location just one minute later. If you feel unsafe walking to your car from class late at night, a cop will pick you up and drive you to your car. There are security cameras all across campus to make sure that we are safe and there are phone lines that students can call if there was an incident or if they feel safe on campus. There are offices on campus for student life and the safety of students.

Overall Experience: I have had some great classes here at Towson. Each of my professors have been very enthusiastic about their class, they strive to make sure each students gets the grade they deserve and they are always there to help. The courses involve lots of great information on the subject and are thorough with their work. I have had some professors that are so passionate about what they teach. There are so many different classes that are offered and they give students a different perspective on whatever the course is about. The class rooms vary with seating and the class setup. There are classrooms that can seat over 150 people and then there are classrooms that can only fit 20 people in there. The class sizes vary between the class itself and the amount of seats that the classroom can hold and the professor. I have been in a class with less than 20 people and then I have had a class with 150 people. The professors were both still available and willing to help even with the amount of students they had.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many people that graduate Towson and move all around the country due to the job that they were offered. The career center on campus allows you to learn about interview facts and jobs around Towson or even jobs in different states. There are plenty of opportunities for internships around Towson or even Baltimore because there are many places that recruit college students and even after the students graduate, the facility may even hire them.

Campus Housing: I have not had the best experience with on campus housing because of roommates. I have had 5 roommates in two years here at Towson. The dorm that I have stayed in has been great besides the roommates. It is very spacious, the atmosphere is very social and happy. There are events that are held each week in my dorm for either food, ice cream, crafting, cleaning the community etc. The restrooms are inbetween two rooms and they are very accessible. If there is a problem with the AC or restroom, maintenance comes within an hour of request. There are events on each floor as well that are made by the RA. My floor mates and I have had events on our floor in the common room like cupcake wars, grilled cheese nights, stress night. The dorm is very inexpensive compared to other schools dorms. The housing process is fairly easy and accessible for students.

Greek Life: I have recently joined greek life and I love it. It has given me so many opportunities and shown me a whole different outlook on life. Greek life are always holding events on campus such as bake sales, community service events, give aways, contests and many more. Non-greeks do believe that people in greek life kind of separate themselves from others, but that is only a small percentage of the greek life community. People who are not in greek life attend the events that greek life presents to support their philanthropies and raising money for future events. There are no greek housing available at Towson because of the rule in Maryland.

Athletics: Our school is not very known for its athletics, but we support each team and their games whenever we can! Students always go to games and support our team even if they are not as good as our competitors. Our teams are always so positive about their athletic year even if they have lost every game. I see athletes on campus all the time and they are very approachable and very active in the community. Our athletic facilities have improved over the years so the football, basketball and soccer fields are very up-to-date and nice. Many people around Towson come and support our athletics with cheers and spirit wear. There are emails, posts on social media and posters all around campus that support the athletics and tell us the updates of each sport games.

Overall Experience: Towson University offers a variety of different events, programs, classes and opportunities for students to use. My favorite experience at Towson would be orientation day my first day at Towson my freshman year. The faculty and professors set up an all day event for incoming freshman to attend events about sports, about classes, about extracurricular activities and your specific major. I met some of my best friends that day and Towson makes sure that you find your place at the University. I come from a very small school and I chose to go a college that has 20,000 students. Towson is such a big university but I see the same people all the time and I love it. Towson makes it a small school, which is a good thing because it makes you feel like you're at home and you can be comfortable being yourself. Towson makes sure that you fit in and have plenty of programs that people can join who have specific interests. If I had to choose another college, I wouldn't. I love Towson and what it has to offer.

Health & Safety: TU has their own law enforcement. They have numerous emergency alarms all around campus that you can quickly run to and press if you are in an emergency and they will get the call immediately.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of different classes that you can take. The class sizes vary. I have only had a few professors that were absolutely horrible. The rest were all amazing.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am not very familiar with the job/internship prospects through a degree from the school. I know a lot of people who have received internships while here, but most of my friends have not graduated yet.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but I have been in many of the dorms. Most of them are not very well updated buildings. The buildings that are updated and newer are a pretty far walk from campus. The older buildings are not very spacious and feel extremely cramped.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am currently in Phi Sigma Pi, which is a co-ed national honors fraternity. They require you to have a 3.0 or above GPA and you must be someone dedicated to their Tripod, fellowship, scholarship, and leadership. Scholarship is heavily weighed on. There are other co-ed fraternities that are pretty decent as well. Most of the other greek life are not as dedicated to being good resources for the community. The other Greek organizations haze and party, and try to avoid doing as much service hours as they possibly can. The head of Greek life on our campus, Matt Lenno, is absolutely horrible about handling hazing situations.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Almost the entirety of campus is heavily indulged in the football and basketball team. There is so much athletic pride during their seasons, it is inspiring.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at Towson has been a fantastic one. I learned so much about myself that I did not know before. I am finally becoming a person that I can respect and feel comfortable as. I would definitely choose this school again if I had to do it all over. I have had a few professors become almost like friends to me. Some of them helped push me to be the best that I could be. They will stop and say hello to me in the hallways and take the time to get to know me. I love how personal yet professional the staff is.

Party Scene: There are great bars to go to. It is near Baltimore so you have a lot of options.

Overall Experience: Professors are very helpful and engage with their students. class sizes are great as well, everyone can always have one on one time with their professor, class styles are good!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay, I'd prefer more space and rooms with more privacy.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: for the most part, at the beginning of every sport its super hot and the talk of the moment but after awhile it dies out and everybody just does whatever they want

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Towson is an amazing school, i love the diversity and how nice all my professors are.

I wouldn't choose towson ifi had to do it all over again because i always wanted to study out of state and explore a new state but academically i dont mind, towson offers what i want and need.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I enjoy how we have an app that is for our safety

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Towson is the type of school that, if you find the right people, you will have a wonderful experience. For those who have trouble making friends, it is highly recommended to get involved on campus. There are many organizations and sports teams that thrive in Towson and are strongly recommended in order to assist students in finding a solid group of friends. Some students love Towson so much that they just cannot pinpoint exactly what it is that they love so much. Perhaps it is the attentive faculty at Towson or the nightlife that has so much to offer. Maybe they just enjoy the small, comfortable campus setting that allows them to pass by familiar faces every day.

Towson is a school that becomes what you make of it. It is clear that the students who are engaged in their work or are interested in an organization gain a greater sense of appreciation for Towson. Some students express how rewarding their experiences at Towson have been while acknowledging the fact that the University is not for everyone.
